Capilla de Santa Barbara, Barichara

4.6
#2 of 16 in Things to do in Barichara
The simple 18th century chapel of Capilla de Santa Barbara charms with its historical presence and humble appearance. The mainly brick construction shows some age, adding to the chapel's historical appeal. A simple cross and sculpture of an ox pulling a plough greet visitors at the entrance. Lush orange and palm trees surround the chapel, which sits at the top of a hill. The interior remains just as simple, with a few pews and a very small altar. As you exit the chapel, take in the view of the white houses and rows of terracotta-colored tile roofs that line the steep mountain road, and peer out onto the lush countryside that unfolds on the horizon.

  • We were here on Saturday. No one in the morning Chapel, an extensive wedding mass in the afternoon. The small church is more beautiful on the outside. The views from the esplanade to the surrounding streets is the trouble. Because the chapel high you can either steps along the steep streets, setting off on the central square. When you do not want to, you can step on that same square take a tuktuk

  • Ok
  • Neat small church at the top of the town.
  • nice
  • Chapel restored some years ago and very well preserved. It preserves several aspects of its original structure. It is in the upper part of the municipality and is a good plan to go on foot from the main Park. Opposite the chapel there is a tree planted over 200 years ago as you can read it to the interior of the chapel.
